comment Will using Google's PageSpeed module help to speed up a site with Magento?
back end code is the bottleneck PHP 5.5 opcache and heavy use of AOE Profiler to find code whoopsus might help, as well as realizing that Magento expects to be given resources, NO SHARED SERVER HOSTING!

comment SEO for ecommerce site with no product description and large inventory
The plugin you are looking for is a human called a copywriter. No website plugin having the AI necessary to look up the information, compile it into human readable content is available.

comment SEO for ecommerce site with no product description and large inventory
No content description = no content what's to index. Hire yourself a copywriter research product information to create descriptive content. Noindex = no indexable pages, how is this even going to be found by customer search? Whole thing needs a rethink if it's to be a serious ecommerce website.

comment Can an ecommerce website be banned for using the manufacturer's description of a product?
It's always fun to demand proof whenever you are talking to SEO salesmen. He's right on unique content, would like third party input on the rest of the proposal/supposition.

comment Does minifying HTML have an impact on SEO?
Google reads web pages by tag order, not by line endings or whitespace position, so a properly formatted html stream will read the same whether it is minified or not. Just faster when minified as there's less data. The only time it makes a difference is if Javascript comes unglued because certain formatting was ignored. If you are the type who follows C style programming conventions, this usually isn't an issue, if you're using the "leave just about everything out possible" Basic style program formatting, interesting things happen during minification.

comment Sending a corporate spammer email to other email spammers, spam lead lists, and spam portals?
Spammers know the importance of having inbound spam filters. All you'll be doing is causing the network loading to be worse, the junk you encourage to be sent will either be dropped by the server or the spam filter and I'll bet their servers are more than adequate to handle the extra junk, so while it's soul salve, it's like using a shovel to dig a hole in a pond.

comment How much time does Dmoz.org take to approve a link on their directory?
DMOZ is now in the realms of cargo cult SEO... Carve a coconut headset time. Total waste and anyone mentioning it needs to get in touch with the current SEO environment. "Secret words => Natural Language"

comment How to check all installed in Magento extensions?
There are tools which are modules like MDN Extension Conflict (Originally Maison du Logiciel) that will not only list out where module classes clash, but also list out all modules (including Magento modules) and display the versioning contained in their etc/config.xml files. As is noted, ymmv, depending on the developer.

comment GoDaddy : does it come with warranty of not losing my data?
You get what you pay for, look in their TOS to see if data backup and restoration is something you pay for in your current service level, increment the service plan till you get what you want or provide your own disaster recovery plan.

comment what does license.txt belong to exactly?
Attempting to find out what version software you are running in an attempt to fingerprint it for vulnerabilities. Common Wordpress/Joomla/Magento, etc. scripted hack scan tactic. Those stupid license files, changelogs and other extraneous litter, don't leave them accessible on a live environment as they leak sensitive information.

comment What to do when web server hosting is down?
About as much as you do when Google Docs is down... Nice to know that Google shares something in common with Rackspace. Both had outages this month.

comment Alternatives to FTP for website file transfer? FTP never works anymore
Plus FTP sends your login credentials as cleartext. Anyone using FTP, telnet, smtp, pop3 or any of those old style plaintext credential exchangers in the current security environment is asking for a good old fashioned packet sniff.

comment Is it against Google's policies to have an AdSense advertisement in an HTML table?
Misspoke on frame/table, but the legality/law vs policy/TOS statement still holds true. If you break policy/TOS, they don't take you to court, they just turn off your service.

comment Can we put more than one meta tag in a single page website?
In support of not having multiple description meta tags. Not only does it confuse the bot, HTML5 spec says there should only be one, so a bot that selects only the first one or the last one is well within its rights to ignore all the rest: w3.org/TR/2014/REC-html5-20141028/…

comment Can we put more than one meta tag in a single page website?
What meta tag are you referring to? There are many types. Duplicate meta tags of a particular type (such as description which is against the HTML5 spec) are a bad idea, which one will win out? stackoverflow.com/questions/29647752/…
